"Lost in Germany" by King's X 

    From the Album: King's X
        Written by: D. Pinnick, T. Tabor, J. Gaskill, and S. Taylor 
            Tab by: John Myers

    Note: 
      1) The E string is tuned down to D
      2) This song has many portions that are "muffled" (or "heavily
         damped") as well as pull-offs, hammer-ons, & slides. I have 
         not tried to included all of those things here. If I did, I 
         would  probably only get it wrong. Use your best judgement...
      3) I have tried to show timing under each tab. If you know
         the song, you probably won't need it, but I included it anyway
         for the "timing" nit-pickers (of which I am a charter member)
      4) If you use the tab, find it helpful, find something wrong, etc,
         send an email to: myers@airmail.net  Feedback is appreciated.

Bridge (or "other part", depending on your musical knowledge & prowess)

I broke the bridge into two levels of complexity. This way, the less 
dexterous guitar player can focus on the melody (bass) line before 
attempting to add the "fill" notes.


Bridge: type a) this part shows just the promenant melody line)

Main Riff (alt)

The Main Riff at the end of the song has a slight variation every other
time (the 2nd and 4th) time it is played. It is shown below (with the 
differences highlighted as *)

Well... that's it.

I know that I haven't included all the pull-offs, slides, hammer-ons, 
etc, but I think that the notes and timings are all fairly accurate.

Enjoy, Good Luck, & remember... Always pillage BEFORE you burn!
